New iPhone SE could be launched in early 2020 and come with A13 chip

Rumors that the Apple will launch a successor to the iPhone SE gain more and more strength. The most recent comes from Ming-Chi Kuo: known for his long history of making hits on Apple releases, the analyst at TF International Securities recently said that the iPhone SE 2 should be launched in early 2020.

Kuo’s information matches last month’s rumors that the iPhone SE 2 (if Apple really uses that name) will look like the iPhone 8 – the first iPhone SE refers to the iPhone 5s, it’s worth remembering.

This means that the device will have a newer look, but will retain “classic” features, such as generous edges above and below the screen, and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, which has been retired on the latest models in the line.

But the detail that draws the most attention is the processor: according to the analyst, the new iPhone SE should come with the A13, the same chip that equips the recently announced iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. of RAM should be 3 GB.

The size of the screen was not commented on, but previous rumors suggest that the iPhone SE 2 should have a 4.7-inch display (just like the iPhone 8).

At the moment, the biggest mystery is the price. The first iPhone SE was launched for $ 399, but its successor is expected to come with a more complex set of hardware, so it is difficult to know whether Apple will maintain this price range.

But if you take into account that the iPhone 8 is currently sold in the United States for about $ 450, you can bet on values ​​not much different from that.
